Do you want to get started with your own music, understand the underlying basics and plan your own events? Do you have questions about GEMA or copyright issues, and do you want to market yourself or help others become successful? Or maybe it’s your love of technology, the feeling of faders and pots in your hand, or hours of tinkering on new sounds that drives you? Audio engineering, music promotion or event engineering? You decide whether an audience of 20,000 people or an intimate recording session is your thing. You will find what you are looking for ...
Our Music Departments
Our music departments include Audio Engineering, Music Business and Event Engineering. The first choice for music and event enthusiasts who want to be well connected and get a kick start in the industry. Our broad portfolio of disciplines ensures that you have a contact person and expertise in the neighbouring disciplines.
In addition, opportunities for joint disciplinary, i.e. interdisciplinary team projects will arise again and again in the further course of your SAE life. We think and live community - something that is noticeable from day 1.
I studied Audio Production at the SAE Institute Hamburg and now that I'm about to finish my Bachelor's degree, I would say that my time at SAE was probably the best of my life.
Besides the fact that it is a super hands-on study, I was able to make a lot of valuable contacts and friendships, which was the greatest thing about the whole thing for me in the end. In addition, SAE offered me the opportunity to work in one of the most popular musical theatres in Germany during my studies, for which I learned to appreciate the SAE job placement service very much. The technology provided on campus is an absolute plus for all departments, which allows us students to already learn how to use professional equipment.
I can only recommend studying at an SAE institute to all future creative minds!

During my time as a student at the SAE Institute, I was personally connected by the SAE Alumni Chapter President with many of the greats in the music industry and was thus able to gain an optimal foothold in the industry. I'm still extremely grateful for this and in the meantime I'm giving back the opportunity I received back then as a sincere connection to my former training institute to today's young talent by recruiting my interns and employees from the ranks of current SAE students and also giving them a chance to kick-start in the scene.

The best SAE experience was that I could immediately apply what I had just learned in practice. I didn't know anything like that from school before. And that's what made the Yeah Effect in audio engineering studies for me. Examining things theoretically makes little sense in the media sector. Hearing about it, but then directly handling the equipment and putting what I had just learned into practice at my own learning speed was the best thing.
